Does our growing energy demand outweigh the need for healthy food and water?

These needs do not have to be mutually exclusive. It is possible to make a transition to clean energy sources, but this will come at some cost because our current way of life is built upon and around the use of dirty cheap energy sources. It will take a significant and costly restructuring to move away from this.

The costs of this transition will be used by energy companies and the people they pay as well as the people who naive enough to believe them to dissuade us from and work to slow this inevitable process. The corporations in the energy industry are scared of any change in the status quo which will reduce the demand for what they are profiting from.
